    In the Visual Report Builder, How Can I Change the Colour (Color) of Each Bar in a Bar Graph?

    Asked by surveys504 on September 23, 2015 at 05:27 AM

    I have recently created a report of a feedback form




    I have been able to change the colours of pie segments, but not of the individual bars for each response. I have gone into the settings for the chart and changed the bar colour, but nothing happens and each one stays yellow.

    I have also changed the chart colours in the style tab, but again nothing changes.

    Thanks for any responses.

    Unfortunately, this is not currently possible. A few months ago a ticket was submitted for this functionality to be included in the report builder but it is yet to be implemented. I will add your request for the feature in a separate ticket. Opening a separate ticket for each user will give our developers a better picture of how many users are being affected be a particular issue.

    The developer to whom your ticket is eventually assigned will notify you here if and when the feature has been implemented.

    Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    Hi there,

    Due to a recent update your color choices will now apply to bar charts on your visual reports.

    Thank you for your patience
